Well deserved….4 reds make the team! So happy for Mez.

Where is the hell is Simon? He’s tied with a league leading 11 wins. What a JOKE!

I couldn’t agree more! Happy for the others but Alfredo is deserving!

Question—What happened to the rule if a fan interferes with a ball in play they will be ejected El Rotundo should have been long gone today.–Never happened…Why not ? .

Alfredo should of been the first player picked on the Reds. Politics, what a bunch of jerks.

There are a number of pitchers selected to the all-star game that are scheduled to pitch on Sunday; including Cueto. If they do in fact pitch, that would open up the all-star pitching roster to additional pitchers, including the proverbial ‘snubbed’ Simon.

Trout, Cabrera and Cruz decline HR Derby.

I told you guys a few weeks ago….Simon would be the guy left off, and it would be BS. But if you think he is a better pitcher than Cueto, you couldn’t be more wrong. Cueto faces #1’s every time out and the Reds flat out, can’t hit #1’s. I also thought Meso would be left off. Big props to Matheny for taking him. Classy move.

People actually watch the celebrity game? The so caled allstar game is ajoke certainly not tne stars of the game just the most popular by name. Look who is the starting ss in the american league.

Dude, Jeter is starting because he is retiring bro! He definitely should be starting @ SS this year for the AL. He’s earned it!
